“I read Mike McClellan’s commentary in Wednesday’s Trib. It sounds like Gilbert is becoming another Colorado City. Christians take heed.”

“To my right-wing friend: My house and credit cards are all paid off, job’s good and 401(k) went up a lot after bottoming out during the Bush years. Last three years have been very good for me because I am not a bitter, angry person like you.”

“At the RNC last week, Clint Eastwood used an empty chair to represent Obama, but after hearing Obama’s speech at the DNC last night, it would have been more appropriate for Mr. Eastwood to have put an empty suit in the empty chair to represent Obama!”

“Clinton, a man who lied under oath, stood before America telling us to ignore the facts and believe him when he says we are better off now then we were four years ago. So, does that mean all those Americans didn’t loose their homes or jobs and the debt decreased instead? His dream is our nightmare!”

“Democrats booed ‘God’ at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte Wednesday. But, despite all of the prolonged boos uttered, Democrats pulled a surprising about face – by amending their party platform into the party’s 2008 language – by acknowledging ‘God’ and declaring Jerusalem the capital of Israel.”

“So far, 0.000063 percent of the country’s population – 196 super wealthy people – have given more than 80 percent of the super-PAC money spent in the presidential election. Senate Republicans blocked a bill that would require outside political groups to disclose the names and contributions of campaign donors who give more than $10,000. Two separate disclosure acts received unanimous support from a majority of Democrats, but failed to muster the 60 votes necessary. Republicans were for transparency before they were against it. For years, it was GOP lawmakers calling for disclosure rules but they’ve conveniently changed their mind.”

“No wonder the DNC wanted to strike God from its platform. With all that lying going on, who wants God around?”

“Bill Clinton has in the past admitted to lying under oath for political gain. Why would I put stock in anything an admitted liar has to say, now? He is the biggest reason among many, I dropped out of the Democratic Party.”

“Holy See seems to be an unholy nest of conspiracies, backstabbing and ambition. ‘Vatileaks,’ as the scandal has been dubbed, has smashed the Vatican’s code of silence to reveal a long-standing tradition of bitter rivalries and corruption. How did the Vatican react? They hired Fox News, experts on twisting the facts, as communications adviser to handle the damage control.”
